Though they were not necessarily close, Miranda treasures her memories of her sister. Wild and daring, Xanda died at age 17 - the same age Rand is now. Miranda wishes she had someone to turn to now, especially when things get really serious.
While searching for the reasons why her sister died and trying to balance school, work, and her future, Miranda stumbles upon secrets long kept by her parents and her friends, and finds a strength she never thought she'd have as well as the closure she's been so desperately needing.
This is not a typical love story about a teenage couple, nor is it a cautionary tale. It is, instead, about the love between a young woman and her unborn child, and all of the possibilities a new life represents.
This is one secret you'll simply have to share. Holly Cupala's debut novel Tell Me a Secret will be passed from sister to sister, friend to friend, reader to reader.
